American magician David Blaine ends his 44-day confinement without food in a glass box over London's Thames River. Blaine, who lost a third of his body weight, is recuperating at a London hospital. After an initially chilly reception, Blaine managed to win some admirers among the British public. Carrie Giardino reports from London.
